"I use a real Hammond A100, customized by John Harburay out of Connecticut. My favorite Hammonds have always been A100s over the years; they seem to have something of a purer tone than a B-3. Live, the Hammond goes into two hot-rodded 122 Leslies and a Hughes and Kettner Puretone 100-watt amp driving a 4 x 12 cabinet. I use two effects on the organ: a Vermona spring reverb and a Moogerfooger ring modulator."more
The Moog Moogerfooger MF-102 Ring Modulator rebuilds your sound into two separate tones and then uses an internal carrier oscillator to spread those tones apart in the frequency spectrum. The higher the carrier frequency, the more the new tones are separated. The MF-102 serves up an astounding range of effects; from slow, velvet-smooth tremolo, to chains jangling in a Chinese gong, to classic "outer space" sounds. The LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) imparts trills, vibratos, siren effects. You want unlimited new sounds? Well the MOOG MF-102 will do the job for you as it does with Ambarchi.more
This was Laswell's list of pedals in 2014, in which this particular pedal can be found as well. "Ernie Ball Volume jr (passive pedal), Digitech Ex7-multi fx epression pedal (orchestra synth sound effect only), Crybaby Bass Wah, Moogerfooger Ring Modulator, Moogerfooger Murf, Digitech Whammy II, Electro Harmonix Bass Big Muff, Pigtronix Envelope Phaser, Digitech Bass Synth Wah, Dod Performer Wah Filter 545 (Beige), Boss DD3 Digital Delay, Boss DD7 Digital Delay/Looper"more
1 of 4 Large Box MOOGERFOOGERS Luke Weiler of Positive Mental Trip is said to be tracking instrument (and vocal) parts with (in March/April 2019) is the MF 102 Ring Modulator. Almost every month multiple demos have been popping up on the PMT Bandcamp page. Most of these demos will become songs on the 3rd Positive Mental Trip album. On the bandcamp there are lists of what MOOG Pedals are tracked on Vocals, Drums, guitar, and Bass. Most likely Luke will use the Electro-Harmonix Ring Thing or the DOD Gonkulator to replicate the MOOG MF 102 Ring Modulator studio sounds live.more

The Moog MF-102 Ring Modulator is a direct descendant of the original Moog modular synthesizers. It contains three complete modular functions: a ring modulator, a voltage-controlled carrier oscillator, and voltage-controlled dual-waveform LFO. It can be used to process any instrument-level to line-level signal.
A ring modulator produces sum and difference frequencies between the audio input and a carrier oscillator. The ring modulator's LFO can be used to modulate the carrier frequency. The Moogerfooger Ring Modulator can create effects ranging from subtle tremolo to harmonically rich distortion, gong-like sounds, sweeps, swoops, and divebombs. It can be subtle, or outlandish in its use - you decide!
The Moogerfooger Ring Modulator's control parameters are signal mix, carrier frequency, LFO rate, and LFO amount. All of the ring modulator's parameters can be controlled by the great feeling knobs that beg to be tweaked as well as with expression pedals or external control voltages. Panel switches select LFO waveform and carrier frequency range. 1/4" jacks are provided for audio input and output, pedal/control inputs, carrier input and carrier output. The heavy-duty yet smooth acting bypass switch allows tabletop or floor use.
Imagine that the ring modulator's carrier oscillator is producing a 500 Hz sine wave, and your input signal is a 100 Hz sine wave. The ring modulator's output will be a complex waveform. You will hear two pitches: 400 Hz and 600 Hz. You will not hear your original input or the carrier oscillator.
Power supply is included for use with 110 VAC.
I don't use this as much as I wish TBH. I use it mostly in extended fx chains where I am already using on of my other mooger foogers. I hardly ever use this thing by itself. I have started to use it on bus's however to give a nice LFO modulation to things like reverbs and such when Im trying to be creative.
The MF-102 Ring Modulator is an award winning effect designed by Bob Moog. It contains an analog Ring Modulator with a built in Carrier Oscillator and LFO. Used with guitars, basses, keyboards, samples, or recorded tracks, the MF-102 can create subtle, or completely over-the-top effects. Uncontaminated by the digital world!
